Atletico Madrid gives Arsenal & Liverpool crucial boost over £63.m signing – Report

According to trending reports, Atletico Madrid have reportedly decided not to offer proposed Liverpool target Jan Oblak a new contract during the summer.

Since moving to the Vicente Calderon in 2014, Oblak has registered 156 appearances across all competitions and the goalkeeper is now regarded as one of the best between the sticks in European football.

However, report emanating from talkSPORT claimed the La Liga giants do not intend to fight off any alleged interest in the Slovenian’s signature with an offer of a fresh deal.

Liverpool are believed to be among the club said to be keen on the 25-year-old as well as Arsenal but Atletico are confident that neither the Reds nor Arsenal will not look to activate the player’s £87.5m release clause.

The £63.00m rated goalkeeper has just over three years remaining on his current deal with the Rojiblancos, meaning the club do not have to consider selling their shot-stopper ahead of next season.

Arsenal will welcome the La Liga giants to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final. Arsenal have been in superb form over the past month and the Gunners will be aiming to put in another incredible show against Atletico, who are regarded as the favourites for the competition.
